Re: [TCML] PC boards

Thanks guys,
     I am already using perf board, but I have acquired enough parts to 
make 5 drivers, so I figured PC board would be the way to go.  also does 
anybody have any experience with this etching solution, it sounds pretty 
good to me, as I already have all the ingredients.
Thanks again.
